So, the G left DougFNJ and made its way down to me. Unfortunately the job and the weather did not cooperate, so I was not able to make it to the coast. I did however have a little time, so could have a bit of fun.

#1, Proof it did make it to me.
#2, Boundary Avenue in Aiken, SC, a very beautiful, frequently photographed, stretch of street. More so later in the year.
#3, The G is only rated to 200M so I hope it can handle this task.
#4, #5, We know G's are tough, but can they handle being run over by a semi truck?
#6, A well loved G, up close. With a problem?

#1 - I know it says Washington, that is where I used to live. Now in South Carolina.


#2 - Boundary


#3 - Water resistant?


#4 - Click to watch. Turn on the speakers.


#5 - Yup tough enough. The tractor/trailer combo weighs about 8.5+13 = 21.5 pounds and will still hit 15+ MPH.


#6 - Interesting feature of this G when the digits change, they are momentarily mixed up/gone!


I may try to add a few more later if the weather and my time cooperates.

Thats great....that video cracked me up :-d

Great road shot....really hard to keep focus on both the watch AND the landscape, isnt it?

Looking forward to more :-!

Well, with the camera I was using, yes. If I had my Canon S3, I probably coulda made it work, but I was in a hurry, so I wouldn't get run over by any cars. The G woulda been fine, but not so sure I woulda been.

Man.....when the weather gets nice, I am going to have to play with and learn ALL the functions of my camera :think:

As the video proved ;-)

I noticed that with my DW9051 as well, which uses the exact same module. Six years ago I thought it was some flaw with the watch, but after some observation I realized it was there on purpose. A little quirky, but it makes for an interesting presentation. :)

Excellent improv when bad weather strikes.

Would it be better to have all the G travels in the same thread, or different ones? I'd say it would be easier to keep track of in the one thread. :think:

The thread will become probably unreadable after some time if all travels end up in the same thread. I think separate threads will attract more readers (when G-travels 3 pops up). It would be easer if the post end up in a Weblog all the original posts. I already contacted Jesterca about this (it's in the making process)

Cheers,
